Personal and professional growth is an important part of success. In order to grow, however, you need to seek out new opportunities, challenges, and inspiration. Alyssa Clarke-Cartwright, 25, is excited to be taking this step toward her future.

Alyssa recently joined PortalGuard, a cybersecurity company based in Bedford as a marketing assistant. Her position allows her to explore many aspects of the marketing world, including inbound marketing.

PortalGuard is a cybersecurity authentication package that delivers a full set of features in a single, fully customizable solution. PortalGuard provides single sign-on (SSO), self-service password reset (SSPR), two-factor authentication (2FA), and over 120 other features to ensure that each organization is equipped with the tools needed to face any authentication challenge.

Alyssa was raised in Maine and moved to New Hampshire to pursue a degree in Communication at the University of New Hampshire. After graduating in 2015, she lived in Hampton for three years before just recently moving to Derry.

After leaving her last role, she set out to look for a position where she could incorporate herself into a great team and continue learning and developing her marketing skill sets.

According to Alyssa, she was drawn to PortalGuard because it offered an opportunity to advance her career with a well-established organization. Her favorite part of the job, though, is the people she works with everyday.

“We have a great team who work tirelessly for our clients,” she said. “Everyone at the company has been so welcoming to my joining the team. I am a true believer that the people make a huge impact into the atmosphere of the company.”

A key part of thriving at the company, she said, is working hard and being a team player.

In addition to what New Hampshire naturally has to offer, such as the beautiful mountains, beaches, and the ever-changing scenery, Alyssa said she appreciates the strong sense of community many of the towns have to offer, particularly how people come together to “celebrate one another and local businesses.”

Outside of work, she enjoys painting, reading, and trying new foods. She also volunteers with The Homeland Heroes Foundation, which is an organization that helps active duty military, veterans, and their families.
